If you have already registered and paid for the test you should have been given a copy of a GMATprep CD with 2 CAT tests on it. check your confirmation e-mail and i'm sure you can get one. These are almost 100% accurate to your actual GMAT, or within 10 or so depending on effort. Otherwise you can get Kaplan Premier 2008 on amazon for like 10 bucks (or 2009 in a bookstore for like 40), which, if it is complete with the CD, contains computer practice tests, but they are not CAT. I think MGMAT is a good name as well. I would suggest acquiring some computer tests and try to get acquainted with the format before actually taking the test.

Yes, I agree with dk. Even if you have not registered for test you can still download the GMATprep from MBA.com. All they ask for some necessary informations that you can provide without any hesitation. These 2 CAT are accurate indicator of your present performance. And you are more likely to get the score in the range of +/- 20 in real test (unless some horrible incidence happens). If you like to go for more CAT tests then buy a Manhattan GMAT book and you will get 6 CAT along with that which are also good for practice. I would suggest you to save one GMATprep test for the last part of your preparation.
good luck

there is a rather large library of questions with the GMATprep software, as long as you have at least 4-6 weeks in between tests, the few repeated questions shouldn't affect your performance. You can most likely retake them and still get accurate results.

I'm pretty sure that they recycle old questions that used to be on the GMAT, it is very close to the real thing.
